undergo some heavier periods of rain that could bring some flooding. 9:00 p.m. tonight, the rain developing near the coastline. the first wave of wide spread rain, possibly heavier pockets by 7:00 a.m. on saturday. then by the evening hours on saturday, we may get a break here but then things will kick up by 11:30. check out the colors. orange and red a extremely heavy rainfall. we have several pockets of that that are possible saturday night in the north bay, east bay, san francisco and the south bay. and then look at this, continuous rainfall through 9 a.m. on sunday and that may last into sunday night. that's where that flooding threat comes from in the forecast. the worst day when the rivers will continue to rise and we may have isolated street flooding would be on sunday and maybe into parts of monday, then we'll undergo on and off again periods of rain into portions of next week. sunday looks the worst of it. if you're heading up to the
sierra or know anyone there, the travel the next two days will be very dangerous. snow 5 to 10 inches on saturday. a rain/snow mix on sunday and then chances of snow all week long. i'll have an update on the river levels and where it could reach flood stage 6:30 tonight. well, growing flu concerns here in the bay area. the new warning following the first flu related death of the season in napa county. happening now on our home page:

es pan yol. so for you friends who get coverage in spanish, watch up at telemundo channel 40. we're going to track the storm and we'll also have updates on our website. back to you, jeff. >> so telemundo, nbc bay area and stormranger joining forces to keep you ahead of the storm this weekend. a flu claimed another life in california, this one in napa. the napa health department is not releasing details but we learned that the patient is under the age of 65. this is the third-related flu death in the state since last week. the health department is urging people, it's not too late to get the flu shot as soon as possible. a lot of frustrated passengers on b.a.r.t. this morning. the problem started at the west oakland station just before 8:00 this morning.
west oakland is the major hub for trains headed to and from san francisco. but a disabled b.a.r.t. car meant all traffic to the city had to be stopped. took nearly two hours before the stalled train was removed and full service was restored. they're still trying to figure out why the strain stalled out. up next, right in the path of the storm. we're live in santa cruz mountain to see how the people are getting ready for possibly eight inches of rain. the mass shootings at the ft. lauderdale international airport is having a ripple effect at airports across the nation. fort lauderdale's airport
remains closed at this right now at 6:30, we continue to follow the breaking news in florida where ft. lauderdale's airport remains closed at this time. no word on when it will reopen. five people were killed and eight people are still hospitalized after a gunman opened fire if one of the baggage claim areas. >> 26-year-old esteban santiago. he was discharged last year by the alaska national guard for unsatisfactory performance. he was treated for mental illness and investigators ahe recently contacted the fbi about hearing voices and disturbing messages. >> no word yet on why he was traveling to florida with a gun inside of his checked luggage but apparently he loaded the weapon after the flight was over in a restaurant there at the airport and then began firing in
the baggage claim area. when he ran out of ammunition, he was then at that point taken into custody. >> and any minute now investigators will be giving an update on the investigation. a news conference. we'll keep an eye on the situation and update you on any information. >> you see the podium and all of the microphones being et sup there. tensions are high at the airports across the country. >> extra security at sfo which has direct flight to ft. lauderdale. damian true hey yo continues our coverage. >> reporter: that alaska flight from ft. lauderdale arrived here at 2:00 this afternoon. they departed before the gun fire erupted and they were met here at sfo with a heavy police presence. police officers at sfo pulled out their heavy fire power today. the heightened alert was in response to the shootings in ft.
lauderdale. >> i think it's crazy. yeah. too much hate. >> reporter: some passengers arriving on 34 5 from ft. lauderdale didn't want to talk about the shootings. other passengers still appeared shaken after learning about the attack in flight. >> horrifying. we were in terminal one, it happened in terminal two but it happened when we ewere in the air. >> we were watching it on the news on the plane. we were so shocked that this happened. >> reporter: a flight to ft. lauderdale departed this morning, that flight landed in orlando and passengers were shuttled to ft. lauderdale because the airport remained closed. and that heavy police presence remains here at sfo. i've seen police officers who are heavily armed, with k-9s patrolling all of the terminals. hear with more insight on
today's shooting is our aviation analyst mike mccarron. lots of security increased at sfo. baggage claim areas are really public. do you think that's going to change? >> i would be surprised if they did anything more than just having more police presence there. it's public facility, just as a mall, a department store, a school auditorium and they have to have access there. that's not a secure area and i don't see anything drastically changing. >> we just spoke with our reporter there in ft. lauderdale. he said he sister was stuck on the tarmac for seven hours. there's so much talk about keeping passengers stuck on the tarmac. are there changes? >> there are changes if there are weather delays and a passenger bill of rights, 90 minutes, they have to refund tickets. but this is a security issue. they tnt know if there was a
second person involved or multiple people involved. they had to scan and fan out and get everyone cleared out of the build. once they secured the build, they could talk about people getting in. it's also a crime scene. is coroner has to come in and do a process to identify the bodies and make sure that everything is covered. that was the biggest delay today. >> the suspect heard voices, went into the fbi's office a couple of months ago telling them he's hearing things and he has mental issues, right? >> that's what it sounds like. this is not related to aviation, just a security issue. he was thrown out of the national guard rather quickly for being unsuitable. he was hearing voices, he was having mental issues. why was he allowed to have a concealed permit, able to carry a gun on a plane. why weren't these things discussed before this happened. >> do you think that will change? >> i would hope so.
i would hope that people have mental issues and have mental issues cannot get a concealed permit. i don't think that's a proper thin thing to do. everybody who is law abiding has a right to carry and i appreciate that and support that but people with mental issues we need to look at more closely. >> so many years at sfo. did florida handle it correctly? >> from everything i've seen, it looks like they did a great job. they sequestered the area. they want to make sure it's safe for everyone. if they start letting people out and there's other people, you could be walking into an ambush. they wanted to make sure the area was secure. >> and make sure that nobody tamp e ers with the evidence prchl. >> it's methodical, tedious and time-consumi time-consuming. >> thank you so much. well president obama has been briefed on the ft.
lauderdale shooting, in a conference with governor rick scott, he offered any federal resources that the state might need. florida's governor reached out to president-elect donald trump. he used twitter to express sorrow over the shootings, saying, monitoring the terrible situation in florida. just spoke with governor scott. thoughts and prayers for all. stay safe. >> stay with us for the continuing coverage of the story on air and online. we're updating our digital plat tomorrows 24/7 and we'll be monitoring the news conference beginning in florida. a live look at our satellite radar showing the system hours away from hitting the bay area. chief meteorologist jeff ranieri is keeping an eye on the storm and our local rivers. >> right now stormranger is detecting a few spotty showers offshore and we could have some light activity develop between

afternoon's playoff game. >> another major setback. >> reporter: hey, guys. i'm alongside raiders insider scott bear and we're in houston getting ready for the playoff game against the houstons. it's really cold out here. it is unfair, the hits just keep oncoming for the oakland raiders. their latest blow coming on friday as raiders announce the left tackle has been ruled out of saturday's game. how will this affect the game? >> i'll be honest with you. this is like a joe frazier punch to the gut. this is a big deal that's going to knock the wind out of a an offensive line. he was probably the nfl's premier left blocking tackle. t to lose him.
he tried to hard to get back to the game, just wasn't able to do it and now they're going to have to mix and match somewhat. they're going to have watson move to the left side from right tackle. they're going to try to make the best of a bad situation. >> reporter: as you mentioned, he did everything he could to play this game and that he was in tears because not only does he not -- is he not able to play the playoff game, but he hasn't missed a game in his entire nfl career. >> and that career spans 156 glam games. that's an incredible sum for anyone. nobody lasts that long. he's only played in one post season game in that span. it's heartbreaker for donald penn who wanted so bad to play in the game and wasn't physically able to do so. >> reporter: predictions. do you think the raiders can win this game with connor cook? >> i don't think connor cook was the problem. but losing donald penn changes
